National Trust Box Hill

We are an open SSSI and SAC site featuring chalk downland, ancient Yew and Box woodland, and a wide host of rare plant and wildlife located on the North Downs in Surrey, south of central London. Traditionally Box Hill has been a recreational spot for City dwellers, and as a site, it is still reflecting and growing from the recent 2012 Olympics Cycling Event as seen in our continually diverse visitor demographic. Steeped in history, and with a variation of trails for both adults and children, the beautiful flaura and fauna of Box Hill will inspire both the casual stroller and keen ecologist alike. We are an open site with busy accessible services and well-trodden walks, but exploring Box Hill will perpetually reveal special places to connect and re-connect one with nature.
